Ambrotype / Antique Glass Photo / Young Man In Kimono / Japanese / C. 1880:
This Japanese ambrotype probably dates to around 1880, and depicts a young man. It comes in its original paulownia wood lidded frame. There are no photo credits or inscriptions.
There is no significant damage to the glass and the emulsion is clear and without any significant scratches, but there is a little dust. The detail is very sharp under magnification, in some places down to the textures of the fabrics.
The wooden frame has general wear and dustiness, with some stains, but there is no significant damage, although the sliding lid fits somewhat loosely.
About W2 3/8" (60mm) X H4" (101mm) X D1/16" (2mm).
The postage charge shown for this listing applies to shipping anywhere in the world outside of Asia.(Other items currently listed by Tetsuguchi.)
General Note about Shipping:
Unless otherwise indicated, we ship all of our items via Standard Air Mail. Nonetheless, we are always happy to change shipping methods if faster (and thus more expensive) or cheaper (and thus slower) shipping is desired. The shipping options available are (from fastest and most expensive to slowest and least expensive): EMS, Air Mail, SAL (economy airmail), Surface.
Registered mail with tracking is also available for an additional US$5.00 above the standard Air Mail shipping cost stated in the description. (The registered-mail charge will become lower if the dollar continues to strengthen against the yen.)
We are glad to combine multiple items for shipping, and of course will discount some of the postage charges for each item after the first one. Please note that the shipping discount is not large for heavy items, but for small, light things we will discount the shipping charges by 40-100 percent, depending on how heavy it is and how it needs to be packed.
We ship at least once and very often twice a week, and so most of the time items will be in the mail within no more than 10 business days after we have received payment. We also always send a brief note informing buyers when their items have shipped.
